July & August Swimming Lessons - If the level you need is full please add swimmers name to the waiting list. 

Summer swimming lesson registration opens Wednesday, June 1 at 6pm online at www.edson.ca and in person at the Leisure Centre.
We recognize that the lessons are very popular and it can be hard to get in to the one you want. Here are some tips to help:
• If you have questions about lessons the best person to ask is Katie Barnes, our Aquatics Supervisor. 
• You will need an account set up on activenet in order to register.
• Register in person at our guest services desk.
• If you have internet access, we recommend online registration. If you do not, the library has computers that anyone can use for free, and they are open until 8 pm on Wednesday.
Other important notes about lessons:
• We are offering 7 sessions of group lessons, the week of August 1 – 5th will have an alternative program due to the holiday Monday.
• Each session is missing 2 swim levels due to pool space limitations.
• Summer lessons are compact into 5 days. To make up for the lost time we have decreased the class sizes for some swimmer levels to ensure program integrity is maintained and pro-rated the cost of the lessons.
• Classes will not be rescheduled in the event of a pool closure.
• Lesson sessions will close for registration 1 week prior to start date. Levels that are less than half capacity will be cancelled and replaced with other levels that have waiting lists or private lessons times.
• All swimmers registered in levels must have passed the previous lesson. Swimmers that are registered in advanced lessons will be removed and a credit applied to the swimmers Active Net account. Electronic Funds Transfers because of these registrations will have a $10 administration fee.

Private swimming lessons open for registration on the last Wednesday of each month at 6:00pm.
